View Full Version : 870 Extreme 3 not even getting to bios

09-23-2010, 12:54 PM
Hello all,

I just purchased an 870 Extreme 3, GeForce GT 240, Athlon II X4 and 2x2GB DDR3 1333 G. Skill RAM to upgrade my system. Unfortunately, after install everything I can't even get the BIOS to show up. When I power up all the fans come on as well as power and reset LEDs but after that nothing happens. Mr. Debugger doesn't show anything and the 'power' and 'reset' buttons on the motherboard don't seem to do anything. As I've just a few new components (none of which are compatible with my old setup) I'd like to know if there's a way to isolate the problem.

Any ideas?

Apparently I need to connect BOTH the 8 and 24 pin power connectors... Everything works fine now. Excellent product.

My apologies for adding to the asininity of the world
